OpenFOAM (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) is an open-source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, widely used for simulating physical phenomena such as fluid flow, heat transfer, solid mechanics, and electromagnetism. Based on the finite volume method, this software is capable of analyzing a diverse range of fluid phenomena, from incompressible to compressible flows, turbulence, multiphase flows, and reactive flows. OpenFOAM supports parallel computing and provides flexible pre- and post-processing tools, enabling efficient execution of large-scale computations and complex simulations. It is utilized in various fields, including engineering, environmental science, aerospace, and the automotive industry, to understand fluid behavior and optimize designs. As an open-source tool, users have the freedom to customize it to meet their specific needs. Additionally, there is strong community support, with a wealth of documentation and tutorials available.
